Eligible candidates may be either emerging or established artists.
Applicants should demonstrate a commitment to spending a significant portion of their time on their work as artists.

An applicant must be at least 18 years old and either a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident alien. Proof of residence and status may be required at the time of application.

All members of a collaborating team must be North Carolina residents, live in the region in which they are applying, and meet the other eligibility requirements. Resumes documenting residence for all team members should be included with the application.
